Banff Wilderness Photography Workshop
The Banff Photography Workshop is launching a new theme in 2012 with a focus on wilderness and conservation photography. Thanks to our new partnership with Parks Canada, this year’s participants will enjoy unequaled access to the wild places, events, and inhabitants of Canada’s first national park. Join us in Banff to explore the power of image in the battle for wilderness conservation.
This workshop provides an opportunity for emerging photographers to learn how to tell compelling visual narratives through images. Two National Geographic photographers will guide participants through classroom seminars, critique sessions and outdoor fieldwork, with the assistance of licensed Parks interpreters.
Participants will apply existing knowledge of their own photographic equipment and digital software to obtain the best results, and to enhance their skills. The sessions are intense and interactive, with the goal of highlighting personal shooting styles. The intent is to investigate the 'why' and 'what' rather than the 'how'. Participants are expected to have a high degree of familiarity and comfort with both their camera and software, and also should have an existing knowledge of the fundamentals of photography.
Join professional photography faculty and licensed Parks interpreters to explore some out-of-the-way places during the most colourful season in the Canadian Rockies – autumn.
